On a somewhat random note... it's COLD!
Okay, so I know that some of you may just think "whatever, you live in Arizona... suck it up."
Humor me for a moment...
Husband and I ventured up to Prescott this weekend and then took a fun little drive up to Sedona and Flagstaff. The trip to Flag was to allow me to play in the snow for a bit... which was quite fun! Well, as we returned to the Valley of the Sun the temperatures were indeed getting warmer (not much) than the higher altitudes. We looked forward to coming home to our warm cozy home.
For those of you that don't know Arizona and much of the west is experiencing an unexpected cold snap (Californians afraid they will lose $1 billion in citrus) with below freezing temperatures the last couple of nights and the same expected for tonight.
Back to our story... we arrived home to find our house slightly chilly and the heater and water heater not working properly. The final test was the gas stove... no go. We did some calling and "investigative" surfing on the net to find that there is a gas outage in the area due to the colder temperatures and the higher demand on the gas source. Nice. The house is staying at a toasty 63 degrees right now (with all the lights on) and outside right now about 41... temps dropping.
Not as bad as some of my friends in the Midwest who haven't had power for three days... but it's kind of entertaining... ha ha ha ha!! You just gotta laugh.
